Mt. Fansipan, Vietnam

Used to dread going on trekking trips but I’ve learned to enjoy them anyway.

I am too lazy to write a wordy post so these pictures will speak for itself.

Food
The porters took care of our meals. Exceptionally yummy (or probably we were too hungry).

In the middle of the night I went out to pee, came back to realise my spot has been taken. Had to wiggle around to gather some sleeping space. It was really cold at night but we manage to keep each other warm.

One of my favourite chaperon trips. There were many moments during the ascending part, I thought we won’t be able to complete the climb as many students started to experience muscle cramps. Yes, ONE AFTER ANOTHER. Against all odds, we’ve made it up and down safely!
